Help For Medina

Medina has had her surgery and is recovering nicely. Thank you to all who made a donation to help us help Medina. We are hoping she will soon find her forever family.


About Us

Collie and Ibizan Rescue of Central NJ is in need of foster homes to care for our rescued dogs until a home is found. Please email us if you would like to volunteer your time and home to help these dogs wait for their forever families.


Who We Are

We are a small group of individuals who are dedicated to rescuing abandoned and abused Collies and Ibizans. All of our dogs are fostered in homes until placed with a family that will love and care for them the rest of their lives. If we have room we will not turn down any dog in need and therefore may have other breeds and mixed breeds available.


Our Available Dogs

All of our available dogs are up-to-date on shots and are neutered/spayed before they are placed in their new home. If you are interested in adopting one of our great dogs, please read our adopting a friend page. You can download our application, fill it out and email it to us.


Rescuers Creed

I shall be a believer of all that is good in man and of all that is deserving in animals.
I shall plead for their lives, campaign for their safety and uphold their right to a natural death.
I shall seek out the injured and the maimed, the unloved, and the abandoned and tend to them in their last days.
I shall not forget their place in the hierarchy of life, nor that we walk in each other's paths.
I shall bear witness to the wonder they bring into our lives and to the beauty they bestow upon our souls.
I shall renew their spirits when they are waning, bind their wounds when they bleed, cradle them when they whimper, and comfort them when they mourn.
I shall be near them in their hour of greatest need - a companion and friend when the time has come.
I shall watch over them and console them and ask that the angels gather them in their arms.
From the creatures of the earth I shall learn the fruits of compassion and undying love, and I shall be called the beloved of God.
In their company I shall indeed be blessed.

In Memoriam to Terri Silverman,
founder of Collie and Ibizan Rescue of Central New Jersey

written by Monica Hodges, long time member

On August 25th, 2008, all animals, especially her beloved breeds, lost a devoted friend and a tireless advocate. Terri Silverman, founder of Collie and Ibizan Rescue of Central New Jersey, donned her angel wings and soared to the heavens, finally free from all physical pain and afflictions of mortal nature.
Terri's life was devoted to speaking for those who could not speak for themselves; fighting for those who were weak, and assisting those who were dependent and helpless. With great love and passion, she nursed many sick animals back to health, rescued many from untimely deaths, and provided homes and names to many who had been previously abandoned, neglected, abused, and nameless. No obstacle was ever too great for Terri to overcome when it came to rescuing animals and bringing them to safety. Her heart and soul were pure and loving. She put others before herself, nurtured selflessly, never gave up on an animal, and because of her, many found their forever homes and forever families to love and protect, as well as forever families to now love and protect them as well.
On August 25th, 2008, we as a group, as well as all who knew Terri, lost a true friend, confidante, and advisor. We lost a friend whom we could always count on for advice and support. We lost a confidante with whom we could laugh, cry, and share. We lost a teacher who exemplified being selfless, ever-giving, true and strong. The world will not ever be the same, and our worlds will not ever be the same. Terri's loss is painful, and we are left with an aching, empty feeling in our hearts.
August 25th will always be a very sad day for us left behind, although I am certain that there was, indeed, quite a gathering at the Rainbow Bridge that day, as she was joyfully greeted with bright eyes, wagging tails, and sweet doggie kisses from those who went on before her and have kept a loving vigil for her reunion with them.
Rest in peace, Terri
